Emmy spotlight: It’s the last chance for voters to bend the knee to Lena Headey (‘Game of Thrones’)

Emmy spotlight: It’s the last chance for voters to bend the knee to Lena Headey (‘Game of Thrones’)
Warning: The following story contains spoilers about the fifth episode of “Game of Thrones” Season 8, “The Bells.”

Lena Headey has reaped four Best Drama Supporting Actress nominations at the Emmy Awards for playing Cersei Lannister on HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Should she receive bid number five this year, she would become the second most nominated “Thrones” actor at the Emmys, just behind Peter Dinklage, who is projected to nab his eighth bid this year. After eight seasons of sublime work and an incredible performance in “The Bells,” it’s time for Headey to finally ascend the Emmy throne.

Olivia Colman’s Emmy nomination ceiling is now down to 1 — will she get it?

Olivia Colman’s Emmy nomination ceiling is now down to 1 — will she get it?
What a difference a couple of months make. Just two months ago, Olivia Colman had a chance to get three Emmy nominations this year and our readers thought she’d get two max. Now? She only has a chance to get one — one that is by no means a lock, which means she could walk away with zero bids.

At the time of her Best Actress Oscar win for “The Favourite,” Colman ostensibly had three TV projects in play: “The Crown” (Best Drama Actress), “Fleabag” (Best Comedy Supporting Actress) and “Les Misérables” (Best Limited Series/TV Movie Supporting Actress). In mid-March, Netflix confirmed that Season 3 of “The Crown,” in which Colman takes over the role of Queen Elizabeth II from reigning Emmy champ Claire Foy, will not premiere by the May 31 deadline, bringing her possible Emmy nomination tally down to two.

Last week, that number fell to one; as Gold Derby exclusively revealed,

Christine Baranski (‘The Good Fight’): 10 Emmy Experts think she’ll make the cut as a lead actress for the very first time
Emmy voters love Christine Baranski, but would you believe they’ve never loved her as a leading lady? This year she’s hoping to change that with a Best Drama Actress bid for “The Good Fight,” and the Expert journalists we’ve polled think she stands a good chance.

Baranski has been nominated 15 times by the Emmys thus far. She had four bids for Best Comedy Supporting Actress for “Cybill” (1995-1998). Another six of her nominations were for Best Drama Supporting Actress for “The Good Wife” (2010-2015). Her other five were for Best Comedy Guest Actress for “Frasier” (1999) and “The Big Bang Theory”. To date the only award she ever won was her very first bid for “Cybill” in 1995.

TV Talk Podcast: ‘Game Of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke, ‘Good Fight’s Christine Baranski, ‘Killing Eve’s Sandra Oh Look Strong In Open Emmy Drama Actress Race

  • Deadline
It’s been another crazy day as we head toward the upfronts next week, with the networks deep in a frenzy of pickups, renewals (nice to see you again Madam Secretary) and cancellations. However, we put those slings and arrows in the background for now as we return with another edition of Deadline’s TV Talk podcast.

Today we’re spotlighting the Emmys’ intriguing Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series race. Part of what makes the 2019 contest even more of a wild card than before is that almost none of the women nominated last year — and including Claire Foy, who won for The Crown — are eligible this time around.

With that said, we dig in and try to determine who of the contenders will be nominated and which one will get frontrunner status – can you say Game of ThronesEmilia Clarke, The Good Fight’s Christine Baranski or Golden

What Tools You Need To Go Shoot Your Own Movie, Right Now

Back in the early 1990s, filmmaker Robert Rodriguez quite literally sold his body to science to part-fund his first feature film, El Mariachi. The movie was shot using traditional movie cameras and 16mm film which made up most of the film’s reported $7000 budget. The feature was edited on old tape to tape machines but went on to be a huge success, and this year, Rodriguez has released his biggest, and indeed most expensive film to date – Alita: Battle Angel – which reportedly cost between $100-150 million.

These days, anyone can go out and make a movie. Seriously, you don’t need thousands of pounds worth of equipment – in fact even some of the big Hollywood players are using technology that is readily available to you and me. In this feature, we’ll list the tech you need for each stage of production to go make your own indie movie for next to nothing!

After Three Decades at Sony, Amy Pascal Finds a New Home, and Perhaps, Identity

After Three Decades at Sony, Amy Pascal Finds a New Home, and Perhaps, Identity
Studio heads tend to move around, but in the last 30 years, several have been closely linked to one brand. To this day, Sherry Lansing is Paramount, Ron Meyer is Universal. And until the announcement Wednesday, Amy Pascal was Sony. But now, the former chairman of Sony Motion Pictures is finally leaving Culver City, after 30 years, to continue building her own identity, at Universal.

Pascal rose through the ranks in Hollywood as what was once termed a “d-girl,” someone who developed scripts. She worked as a production executive alongside old chum Scott Rudin at Twentieth Century Fox before landing at Columbia in 1988, where she developed “Awakenings,” “Groundhog Day,” and “Little Women.” In 1994 she took on President of Production for Turner Pictures, then rejoined Columbia in 1996. Working closely with mentors Gareth Wigan, John Calley and finally, Michael Lynton, Pascal took over the chairman role in 2006.

‘The Crown’s Claire Foy & Matt Smith To Reunite On Stage In The Old Vic’s Environmental Play ‘Lungs’
The Crown’s Claire Foy and Matt Smith are reuniting after their royal outing – this time on stage at London’s The Old Vic Theatre.

The pair are set to star in Duncan Macmillan’s Lungs, an “emotional environmental rollercoaster”. The play, which is directed by The Old Vic’s Artistic Director Matthew Warchus, who previously directed Broadway musical Matilda, is set around the melting ice caps, overpopulation and political unrest as they bring a baby into the world.

“Hot on the heels of the Extinction Rebellion consciousness-raising demonstrations, there’s an extremely limited run of Duncan Macmillan’s dazzlingly vibrant and profound two-hander, Lungs, which sees a conflicted couple wrestle with huge contemporary dilemmas surrounding the responsibility of bringing new life into an increasingly precarious world,” said Warchus.

Elsewhere, The Good Wife’s Alan Cumming and Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, who is currently featuring in TBS comedy Miracle Workers,

The Crown Season 3 To Hit Netflix In Second Half Of 2019

Fans of Netflix’s The Crown have been waiting an awfully long time for the third season of the acclaimed royal drama to get here, but it sounds like they’re going to have to sit tight for a while longer, as the streaming service has now revealed that it won’t be with us until the second half of the year.

In a letter to investors sent out this week, Netflix stated that The Crown would be debuting its third season at some point after July. Given that the second season premiered on December 8th, 2017 and the first was with us on November 4th, 2016, it stands to reason that the third run will be emerging during the winter months, though an exact date has yet to be nailed down.
